Sure... There's no reason why you couldn't use any industrial closure system. My brief was cheap so I used tie wire. My walls have so far been in for 3 years and all is good.
Sure... agreed. Using these items would greatly increase the strength and ease but at $13 a panel and $3 per connector the price would also go up considerably. I contained 600 sq feet of rock for $200. Each box using these items would be almost $100. My requirement was cheap and reliable. There are commercial systems that are similarly priced and better suited. http://www.gabion1.com/
Scott... where i live the humidity is so low... average of around 40%. The 12 gauge mesh is the least of my worries... The main weak point would be the tie wire. After 2 years the wire that ties the joints has a light surface rust. There are in a standard rock container 60 tie wire joints and 4 more structural wire cross members. I'm not so worried about galvanizing.... I might if i lived in California.
